....it does look like Gojira. Worth about 10 seconds of your time on the way to a boat tour. But it's not like you'd drive here specially. There are a couple of nice shops and a decent spot for lunch nearby,

A big rock and thats it. On top can have an overview of Utoro onsen, if you willing to climb up. I have time but dont want to go up.

I was really very surprised to see the resemblance of this natural rock formation with the Japanese famous Godzilla. We were on our way to ride the cruising vessel "Dolphin" for 3hr cape cruising and caught a glimpse of this natural wonder.

It takes 200 steps or so to get to the top of this rock, but once we were up there the views were very good. It is certainly worth the effort and time. Watch out for the seagulls!

The best angle to see a true image resembling Godzilla would be from the tunnel leading out from the port (boarding area for cruise) to town.

OK, this is a nice rock, but it is in the middle of the harbour, which is quite dirty and does not give envy to stay in this city. It is better to see it from far away, and to go in boats for the...More

At sunset on a clear day, this place is absolutely stunning... The clear shimmering water below, the swifts, seagulls and petrels playfully swooping around the cliff face, the fading daylight reflecting off the sea and the town, forest and fishing harbour below. I was absolutely...More

If you stay in Utoro, you should definitely go check it out. Although the climb looks daunting (the steps are steep), it's actually a short climb. Good view over Utoro, the surrounding mountains and the sea. Best done during sunrise or sunset.
